Lets talk lipsticks. How do you choose your lip colour? Most women head to the makeup counter and proceed to swipe 79 different shades of lippy on the back of their hand, only to find the one that they end up purchasing doesn’t really look the same as it did on their hand. A super neat trick I learnt many years ago from one of the best makeup educators in the business @raemorrismakeup – Instead of using the back of your hand (which has nude/neutral undertones), use the tip of your finger, where your fingerprint is, it is pretty close to the colour (blue/red undertone) and texture of your lips. If you don’t get the desired colour in one swipe, choose a different lipstick. You don’t want to be using half a lipstick each time you wear it. Besides, the more lippy you put on, the more lippy that comes off #probsonyourteeth.
